On average students spend around $500 per semester on books. However, that amount can vary widely. Depending on your program, the cost of books per semester can range from $200 to $1000.
When a professor indicates a textbook is required, it generally means that the book is an integral part of the lesson plan for the course and not having it would make the class much more difficult.
If a textbook is marked Optional, it generally means the material is supplementary to the lesson plan and will enhance your overall understanding of the course material.
There are cases where both a printed textbook and an e-book are available. You will see both options on your booklist. We mark one option as required and one as optional so that you don’t order both versions. When you see this on the booklist determine which format you would like to have and only order either the printed version or the e-book, not both.
Once the booklist is live in mid-August you will be able to place an order for your Fall term course materials. As all orders will be fulfilled through our online ordering system we anticipate we will be handling a large volume of orders. We recommend ordering as soon as possible to avoid delays in order processing and shipment in early September.
To ensure students have ample opportunity to purchase their course materials, the Campus Store stocks these materials for the first eight weeks of term.
At this point the store begins to send any remaining materials back to the Publishers, unless we've been notified by a professor that they will be used in an upcoming term. This enables us to begin preparing, sourcing and stocking materials for the next term.
You want to ensure your're prepared for class so please don't wait until the day before your exam to purchase your course materials. Chances are that if you come in the day before your exam we will not have a copy of your textbook in stock. Be reasonable; you have known since the first day of class the exam was coming. It’s your responsibility to be prepared.
Our refund policy states that textbooks can only be returned if they are in their original packaging and in new condition. Do not write in, mark or read your textbook or open accompanying software until you are certain that you have purchased the correct material. Used textbooks are also refundable.
Accompanying software until you are certain that you have purchased the correct material. Custom printed Course Packages are always non-refundable.
Fall Term - September 23, 2022.
All orders for Fall term will be processesd through our online orderinig site. We accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express, OneCard and Laurier Bookstore gift cards.
There are a limited number of used books available. They are sold on a first come, first serve basis.
Although not all titles are available as a rental, we have a growing number of rental books available every term. This enables you to rent new and used books up to 55% OFF the new price every time.
New books have come directly from the publisher. Used books may have markings and may be worn, but they should have no missing pages. Used texts, if available, cost about 25% less than new ones. There is no HST on USED books.
Used books are always in demand and they sell out quickly. Make sure you shop early if you are hoping to buy your books used!
If we do not have the book that you need for a class, that does not necessarily mean we are out of stock, it could mean the book is on order and has not yet arrived. Please continue to check the book list in late August/early September as we are receiving stock daily.
The Laurier Bookstore will send communication about your course if it is running digitally to your MyLaurier student e-mail prior to the start of classes. Please ensure you monitor your email for detailed information pertaining to your course materials for DTA courses.
